To seeTo see

Athens, Istanbul, and even London or New York do not offer you as many amazing sights as Rome. A walk through the Via dei Fori Imperiali to the Colosseum is breathtaking for anyone. That is only a small cross-section of all the beauty the city has to offer. Apart from the Roman heritage, there are areas and markets here from the Middle Ages as well. And of course, the Vatican with the Church of St. Peter.

Fontana di Trevi (the Trevi Fountain)

This fountain was made world-famous by the Swedish actress Anita Ekberg, who took a bath in this fountain in the film La Dolce Vita. The fountain is bigger than you might expect.
Address: Piazza di Trevi

Pantheon

Perhaps not so impressive from the outside but the interior is really breathtaking. This powerful and imposing temple was built more than 2,000 years ago.
Address: Piazza della Rotonda

Forum Romanum

A fairy-tale land, a mosaic of temple ruins, dilapidated marble streets and basilicas. The Forum Romanum was the economic, political and religious centre of ancient Rome. And almost opposite is the Colosseum, the mother of all gigantic arenas.

Piazza Navona

This square is not only known as Rome’s finest, but also as the most impressive in the world. Not only because of its many statues and fountains but because it is so unbelievably large. Despite its size, this stretched-out square is nonetheless not unappealing.

Domus Aurea (Nero’s golden house)

The Emperor Nero had a palace nearly ten kilometres in length built in 64 AD – from the Palatine Hill right down to the Oppius Hill. Certain parts were covered with gold and ornamented with precious stones and magnificent decoration. After Nero’s death, everything was covered with earth to erase the memory of the tyrant. The area was discovered by chance in the 15th century. You can now walk through 30 of Nero’s 150 underground rooms. Price: € 6
Address: Via della Domus Aurea (right opposite the Colosseum) Metro: Colosseo

The Rome Museum

The Rome Museum houses around 40,000 sculptures, paintings and mosaics. They describe Rome’s history from the Middle Ages to 1870. The museum is housed in the 18th century Palazzo Braschi. In the Fascist period, Mussolini moved in here and made it his political headquarters. After the Second World War, the palace accommodated 300 evacuated families. Many of the fine frescos were seriously damaged by the fires that people lit to keep warm.
Price: € 6.20
Address: Via di S. Pantaleo 10, Bus: 40, 46 and 62 to Corso Vittorio Emanuele.
